UK 850 MHz solid-state NMR facility PhD travel fund supported by Bruker

The UK 850 MHz Solid State NMR facility PhD travel fund supported by Bruker provides funding for:
(a) attendance at an internationally recognized, high-profile conference where a PhD student presents results he/she obtained at the 850 MHz Facility, or
(b) a “start-up” visit to another lab to learn new methods to be implemented at the 850 MHz Facility. (Funding should not be requested to support pre-existing or ongoing collaborations.)

The scheme will consider one application per research group per conference with a maximum of three awards per university department/school per calendar year. A student can receive up to 2 awards during their PhD studies. In exceptional cases, applications will be accepted from postdoctoral fellows.

The maximum award (per student per conference or visit) will be £1000. A typical award will aim to cover ~80% of the total cost of attending the conference (or the lab visit).

Your application must be submitted at least one month before the conference/visit.

For more information please contact the scheme coordinator Professor Stephen Wimperis (
